Recently I found out this great add-on for Visual Studio 2008 called PowerCommands. PowerCommands Extends the functionality of Visual Studio 2008 by adding some features which we all want built into Visual Studio. PowerCommands provides the following:

  • My favorite: Copy Reference, very useful indeed, and you all know it, just right click on the reference you want copied and select copy reference, now go to the another project and just paste that reference
    PowerCommands Copy Reference 
    * you can copy all the references by right clicking on references.

  • Another useful option is Collapse Projects, click on the solution and collapse all the projects at ounce. Very handy if you have a project loaded solution.

  • Email Code Snippet, I don’t know about how useful is it, but its cool :).

There is much more inside so just download PowerCommands here and find out all the other enhancements.

    I agree that ReSharper is great but
    ReSharper is not free while PowerCommands is.
